Dutiful Jessamine Barry is tired of waiting patiently for a man to decide her future. So even though Lancelot Marfleet, second son of an aristocrat, is taking an interest in her during the London season, she refuses to consider him as a suitor. Instead, she's ready to take fashionable society by storm--and finds a rakish young man all too willing to help her do it. When things go too far, Jessamine will learn that the man who is faithful through thick and thin is more worthy than the one who speaks pretty words. But will her disgrace keep Lance from reconsidering her as a wife? And when tragedy strikes and Lance becomes his father's heir and a titled gentleman, will he think she only wants him now because of his title?

When I requested this title, I didn't really know what to expect. I had never read anything by this author, nor had I ever heard of her. I had a friend that read this book before I did and said that she thought that it was a bit slow, so I was mildly concerned. When I started reading it, I noticed that the author had a writing style similar to another author that I had trouble with reading because she was pretty slow paced, but my fears were unmerited. This book was a pretty good read! Not a favorite, but I did enjoy it. It wasn't slow moving, as my friend had claimed, but instead it kept me interested until the very end. I'm not saying that it was a super fast paced story that had me sitting on the edge of my seat biting my fingernails, but I had no problem concentrating on it, and toward the end things really started to pick up. The ending was the best part. I definitely think it was worth the time that it took me to read it. And the cover is so pretty! This is one of those beautiful books that you will want to showcase on your favorite bookcase. I am really glad that I got this book, despite my earlier reservations. If you like Christian Fiction or Historical Fiction, I would greatly encourage you to try "A Heart's Rebellion". I will definitely be keeping an eye out for more books by this author.
